AutoDuel is a game developed by Origin in 1985.
It’s a board game based on Steve Jackson Games Car Wars.
It incorporates combat elements typical of a role play, guide and action.
The game is set in a futuristic version of the United States, where bands and vigilantes rule the wilds and the only protection for people are armored cars with weapons mounted on board.
The player plays the role of a normal person who has to earn enough money to buy his own car and then perform missions throughout the country.
The progression of the game is quite open: the player is free to visit different cities, explore highways, participate in battles in the Arena to earn money, face gangsters in the desert, recover parts of cars and so on.
Some missions must be completed to advance the story.
The player can build and customize vehicles using guns, smoke screens, oil slick, rockets and other accessories, choosing from various types of bodywork and chassis for the car.
The whole game has a top-down perspective.
